If your child has breathing difficulties, our dentist may recommend the HealthyStart™ System to help their jaws and airways grow and develop properly. Using this non-invasive treatment, we can help your child breathe easily during their waking and sleeping hours.
What is the HealthyStart System?
The HealthyStart System is an all-natural, non-surgical orthodontic treatment. It involves the use of a series of uniquely designed oral appliances. Your child will wear these appliances for a few hours each day or at night while asleep. Over time, these appliances will encourage nasal breathing and discourage mouth breathing, helping your child develop an airway that is wide and open so that they can breathe normally and without any difficulty.
The HealthyStart System is designed to prevent Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) and related problems. When your child is well-rested, they will perform better in school, be better behaved and experience fewer health issues. An additional benefit of the HealthyStart System is that it helps to widen the jaw and straighten the teeth, reducing the need for extensive orthodontic treatment with braces or other orthodontic treatments in the future.
